4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Sacramento State- I have only attended one semester online but my teachers worked with me (I gave birth to my daughter a month before the semester ended). They were helpful and everything was easily navigable online.

Overall Experience: I love California State University, Sacramento a lot ! Due to the fact it's home and I have made a lot of connections, especially for nursing. Our schools black organizations are really fun and very inspiring. The professors I have encountered so far, are there to help you. However, it is home and I love to travel. So, going to school in a different state would be nice, to experience new people, ideas, food.

Greek Life: they seem fun but some can be rude. There are others who are extremely nice and nice for classmates

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: athletics at our school is important. Football season is fun and rest of the sports. many students mainly attend and participate on the intramulas sports and they are very fun

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: there is always places to move in off campus. The cost can be pricy for a one bedroom but cheaper than dorms. some could be close to campus but usually more expensive. But either way there is always transportation to use to get to the school.

Party Scene: there are many parties happening throughout the school year, you must know people to attend or you can always go downtown and go to clubs. there so much fun and worth it

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of food places in the city. Especially downtown there are many things to pick from. its great over all

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is great in the dorms and around campus. when they smell or think someone is under the influence they check and make sure they are following the rules which is very good.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The school does have a variety of choices to eat. Panda is always great as well as logos or jamba juice. The value of the other places i think is too high. don't have many promotions or coupons.

The meal plan is worth it because most students don't have time to eat, but you do get tired of the food.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process went really smoothly. It is not difficult unless you make mistakes, but you need to be up to date checking our student center if the university needs some papers. Aside from that, just be patient getting your financial aid, i highly recommend to sign up for Efrund. it sends your money directly to your banking account than waiting for it in the mail

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay to be living in. Mostly everyone is very nice and easy to talk to thats the good thing, the workers are extremely nice and strict with their rules. amenities are good, the housing process is well organized not too difficult to understand

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Sacramento has so many options for you, Sac State is close to down town where all the great food places are.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I haven't had much experience in this area but they are extremely strict on drug and alcohol use which is good.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: They have a lot of options and a variety of food. However, I wish there were more healthy options than fast food places. Subway and Togo's, and Good Eats have very good food but mostly sandwich. Wish there was a wider variety of healthy food.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Sometimes its hard to figure out who exactly you need to talk to about your situation but thy have a center and student workers can hep you figure out where you need to go or what you need to do.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I beleive that living on campus would be a great experience to live the college life, however, I will be attending college this fall but I am not staying in the dorms. I am a resident in Sacramento area already, living with my parents, so I did not stay in the dorms. The conditions of the dorm at sac state however, it quite lovely because my friends are staying in the dorms. Therefore, the campus housing is okay but I don't really know myself to be honest.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting financial aid through Sacramento State is fairly easy but it can be a confusing process. There are people who will work with you in the financial aid department who are very helpful and take you through the process.

Off-Campus Housing: I live off of campus in a gated apartment complex and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an apartment. The prices are a bit steep but it's worth it. Everything feels safe because it's gated and there are a lot of amenities.

Party Scene: I do not party usually so I would not know.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off Campus dining is numerous and diverse but if someone were to not have vehicle transportation it could be some amount of effort to actually GET to off campus dining unless it is right off of campus.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The policies give students a lot of freedom and I feel that no one feels tied down by the rules set in place. They are more strict about class attendance. I have noticed this when comparing with my friends from other colleges and universities.

Campus Food: I think the campus food is diverse and gives everyone a lot of options. They need healthier places that are cheaper, that would help because even though RF Greens, Good Eats, and Jamba Juice are all on the healthier side, they are also pricier compared to some of the other restaraunts.

4 College Freshman

Administration: There is a alcohol awareness tutorial that all new students have to take which was very helpful even for me since I do not drink.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
